On the remote northwestern coast of PEI in1987, a 26 m long mature female blue whale washed ashore. In most cases, when whales die, they sink far out to sea. In this rare opportunity, the Canadian Museum of Nature buried the whale and in 2008 launched a recovery expedition in the hopes of what she could one day inspire if displayed. After two years of preparing and articulating the bones, this beautiful whale now lives in the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at the University of British Columbia as Canada's largest whale skeleton and is one of only 21 displayed worldwide.
